Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord.

The needy will never be lacking in the land; that is why I command you to open your hand to your poor and needy kinsman in your country. -Deuteronomy 15:11

This is the most beautiful view of DC I've ever encountered!

Most Americans know about the National Mall with the monuments and they might be able to tell you that Georgetown is a beautiful experience. However most of the tourists visiting D.C. will never step foot in the Southeast. You see, those neighborhoods are the projects, drug deals happen everyday, children encounter school shootings on a regular basis and go hungry all the time. This is not the part of D.C. that people want to see.

Today I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer in Southeast Washington D.C. for some missionaries with 'A Simple House'. Their mission is to provide for their poor material and spiritual lives by building friendships with them. They provide things like rides to see their sons in prison, or a 30 minute drive for someone to go to a church service that they haven't been to in years. They put on bible studies for the children in the neighborhood and bring around gifts during the holidays. Today we helped make 20 lasagnas for the missionaries to deliver to some to the homes they visit.

Check out this group of beautiful Catholics that I volunteered with!
